On Saturday 17th June, LSE Press author Gwyn Bevan shared the story behind his new book, publishing via Open Access next month, How did Britain come to this? A century of systemic failures of governance as part of the LSE Festival: People and Change.
In this launch event chaired by Professor Tony Travers and Ros Taylor, Gwyn Bevan and the panellists discussed the central themes of his forthcoming book, which examines a century of varieties of systemic failures in the British state. The book begins and ends by showing how systems of governance explain scandals in NHS hospitals, and the failures and successes of the UK and Germany in responding to Covid-19 before and after vaccines became available.
